Effective training is not an isolated event in an organization. Training must be strategic in that it is designed to improve the knowledge, skills and abilities of employees to help them achieve the organization’s strategic plan. Therefore, effective training cannot be designed until we first understand the organization. This is done by conducting a SWOT analysis to determine the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to the organization. With this information and an understanding of the organization’s vision, effective training creates a competitive advantage for the organization. After completing the SWOT analysis, a training needs assessment is conducted to identify the gaps between the employees’ actual performance and desired performance. Careful analysis of performance gaps determines what training needs to be done or if there is a need for training at all. In some cases, the performance gaps are not related to training deficiencies and other interventions may be needed.
